    So yesterday...

    I'll keep this brief.

    There's an art display in a coastal town that was opened by Banksy. We've been trying to get tickets to it for weeks and it closes next weekend (total of 5 weeks). I think they purposely did it to create hype. I think they were running a social experiment as well but who knows. Artists are ******* annoying.

    Anyway, we decided to try the 'walk ins' route. We drove 2 1/2hrs to this town. Stood in line for 4 1/2hrs and didn't get in. Reason is because they hold special events on the weekend evenings so no evening tickets available for walk ins. By total and sheer luck a couple walked by with one extra ticket so my wife took it and went in for about 45 mins. At least one of us did. Unfortunately she feels completely guilty about it now. To me it meant it wasn't completely wasted day. Still, I was very annoyed about the whole thing. I'm sunburned as well and my legs ache from all the standing. Not pleasant.

    To make life even more fun, it was a long drive home. The rugby world cup is on here and we got caught in the traffic. Didn't get home until 9:45pm.

    Such a wasted day overall though. That's basically a day I'll never get back. Such crap crowd control. Lots of angry people as well. Good thing none of them were drunk...

    The only thing I really care about when it comes to reviews of a hotel is cleanliness. After that comes location, then staff. I find a lot of bad reviews on Tripadvisor tend to be really silly if you read them. I've read so many were people complain over the littlest things. My favourite was an American complaining about a Paris B&B that it only had one TV channel in English. We stayed at the B&B anyway and it was great, I didn't go to Paris to watch TV...
    Agreed. 100%. And that's what I told the GF...as long as it's clean, we'll be fine. Many people write poor reviews in situations where it wasn't necessary.

    The wife shouldn't feel guilty. It's not like you weren't trying or waited last minute to do this. At least she got to see it.

    I've told her not to feel guilty about it.

    To be honest, she was more keen than me. Which is why I was happy for her to go in. Sure I wanted to go in too but as soon as we got there and I saw the line up I was ready to leave. Without tickets I knew it was going to be a risk. I had that feeling we weren't getting in.

    She feels guilty because I was rather grumpy at the end of it but I was exhausted from standing for 4 1/2hrs and getting sunburned. Was I supposed to be joyous after that? No. She assumed I was grumpy because I didn't get to go in. Hell I didn't even want to go in the first place in these circumstances.

    I feel as though I was part of some social experiment. There's nothing I hate more than going through this kind of nonsense and being caught up in hype.

    Sahib, you have an Xbox One right? Can you even play off-line if the game has been loaded before hand? Say Halo Spartan Assault?
    Well I can technically play but I can't use the online features. For example , no multiplayer, no events , no chat , but you can play the main game. I hope that answers your question

    Okay so I have been now using the 640 for quite some time now. I really like the screen size, the camera is good (can be better but it is definitely passable) and the battery life is stellar. I need NFC for sure because I am getting tired of not being able to use the NFC terminals to pay for purchases. Also I would like wireless charging. I think MSFT will deliver these items on October but I am not sure how payments will work, hopefully we can port over Android Pay via Project Astoria. Keeping my fingers crossed. I really don't want an Android or iOS device on my 3rd line to be able to use the two features I would really like to use on a day to day basis...

    I agree with your statement . The screen is better than my 830 in my opinion . For around 100+/- this phone is a good buy

    I forget what year it is. I know it's a dodge intrepid SE V6. I would look into it more but I haven't had time . Though why do you say the 3.5 would of been better :p? I'm Curious:)
